Psychiatric Aide

As a psychiatric aide, I mainly assist nurses in patient care. This includes helping patients in following their personal programs, ensure they are behaving appropriately, and to develop their life skills

When interacting with difficult patients, I've had to increase my emotional intelligence. Since many of these patients have mood swings, I have to be able to empathize, listen effectively and be patient with them to ensure their needs are being met.
